My first serious girlfriend's brothers were buddies with Geddy and Alex.

I actually did a Murder Mystery at Geddy Lee's house. Sat next to him all night. What a trip.

A MURDER MYSTERY AT GEDDY'S HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Damn dude!! you lucky bastard!! i am way jealous but real happy for you - that must have been absolutely awesome. I have loved Geddy's playing, singing, and composing since a bit before 1980. Can't even imagine how cool that was. Seems like a really nice guy in any interview ive seen - sense of humor too. kudos to you for having that great time.

It was a fancy dinner party for held by Geddy's wife for their---get this---interior decorator. Lots of notables from Toronto show biz were there including the guy who shot all of the famous Rush album covers (don't know if he still does them now). We started the gig around seven and that took us through seven courses of a fourteen course dinner. At around ten-thirty I was served a dish of what I thought was ice cream and turned out to be merely a pallette cleanser. I turned to another actor and said under my breath "Let's book." A lot of people were coming late to the shindig clearly dismayed that the Murder Mystery they hoped would be over was still going on. So we wrapped it up. Those into it ranged from the guy whose birthday it was, Geddy, his wife, and the photographer and down from there to people who were just waiting for it to be over. EW had a few scripted moments then would justr schmooze whoever was around us. I sat beside Geddy and his wife. We left while we still had people into it. Lee especially was having fun accusing me of being the murderer (which I was) at one point. I accused him of selling me out and that some of us still remembered Caress of Steel. He looked mock-horrified and made lip-zipping motions. My friend playing the detective made jokes about backward masking and other such things all night. We did not know when we got there that it was Geddy Lee for whom we were doing this as his wife hired us.

Oddly the premise was that we were all friends so I couldn't tell him that I was a fan. I never broke character and acted like his buddy all night. What a laugh. As an in joke we had a beatbox with an important clue on a tape but it was a red herring and the climax of the show was the detective hitting the Play button and it being Motley Crue playing "Dr. Feelgood", which we thought was the funniest song we had ever heard at the time. We were excited as hell that the room was full of rock n' rollers who would get the joke. It all fell flat when after about a minute and a half one woman said "Is this Guns n' Roses?". Guess we should have played Big Railroad Blues.

That would be the superfluous part.

For example, you can't really show 'Fight Club' to everyone because of the obligatory sex scene...
